Change Thai Baht to Mandalay Airport - Myanmar Message Board
Now that I am in Thailand and fly to Mandalay from here, did I wonder if it is possible to switch Baht to Kyats at Mandalay Aiport? I will not be able to use my ATM in Myanmar, so I have to take everything in bar! I' ve already traded enough $ for some hotel and some small things, but if I could trade Baht for Kyat, I probably wouldn't lose so much on forex!
You will find it on the right side of the entrance to the building. Nowadays, the exchange rates are one Baht equals 30 Myanmar Kyats. Do you have any ideas if the 1000 TB notes can have a crease in the center of a pocket? Did anyone charge Thai Baht at the Rangoon Yangon International Airfield?

U.S. Dollar vs. Thai Baht
Whenever you trade cash, you loose something. When you come with the bucks, you' ll take them to Myanmar. Modify what you need there, what's remaining, you can convert back to Baht when you return. I understand you need to be a little wary of Myanmar's foreign currency exchanges.
For the best prices I get from cash machines and have a no-fees ticket. u can look like there are a few bang. Years ago I ran into a Thai guy in Yangon who only took Baht. It was a poor concept at the time, since the US$ was essentially the only changeable foreign exchange rate, with some others on the subprime markets (including Baht) being about 75% of what you were to get.
In the country and elsewhere, almost inconceivable. Unless, of course, along the Thai frontier. However, at that time the checkpoints were shut except for restricted journeys in the frontier areas. That determines the amount of money to be taken. For example, if he plans to enter the country from Mae Sot to Myawady or from Mae Sai to Tachilek, you will ONLY be able to make Baht BUT exchanges the most, if not everything at the frontier.
Alternatively, you could take a mix of Baht and US$, Euro or Singapore Dollar. You can only change Baht in Myawady. When a trader accepts to change another money (including USD), this can only be done during business hour after a lot of telephone conversations to set the price (and no, they will not know what it is because the US dollar is not of interest to them at the border) and is not inconvenient.
The Baht are traded back and forth but that should be clear, as it is a frontier town. Myanmar immigrants are the only "traders" interested in US$ in Myawady who take a slip of US$ 10 for one-day admission, although they usually favour 500 Baht. If, however, the OR goes there on a visas (required to cross the borders and enter the country), there is no payment for migration, a prior visas is necessary.
When the O.R. plans to go to Yangon, Baht can be changed at a number of exchange offices in the capital at good prices. You can exchange these three currency at all of our bank locations, even at the airports. Except you are acquainted with the citys, finding some coin change machines in the citys could not be the most interesting starting point to a corporate or vacation.
Better exchanges in the city in such cases. Luckily, in Chinese frontier areas near China (Mong La and other cities under UWSA or other groups control) ONLY Chinese YUANS are acceptable, but there is a Kengtung store that can offer you YUANS if you don't have them. Funny enough, most traders in Tachilek opposite Mae Sai are hesitant or not prepared to take Kyat and indicate all rates in Baht.
And that' although the two cash machines in the city only spend Kie. As I asked for it, I was asked to pull back and trade it for Baht at a coin change machine or at the mall. When you need more cash, go to an ATM. Up to 300,000 kyats with a charge of 5,000 kyats per payout (similar to Thai cash machines when using international cards).
